  • Old tow is the Heart of Yazd. it is where all tourist, hotels, hostels are located. Walking through the old town, through its small alley. You can just walk through without and if there are any stairs...  more »
  • I've visited some old towns in Central Asia so so far this was the best as it was rather big to discover and you really need a guide to take you around and tell you the history behind each door. 
  • Mysterious and ancient place with friendly people. But the alleyways are like a "maze"! You should use Google maps to find all attractions easily. It takes half of a day to visit all the complex.
